Silversea increases UK cruises for 2011

Date Posted: 16 Jul 2010

Silversea cruises has planned its largest ever programme of ex-UK sailings for 2011.

Due to the record number of cruises departing from British ports in 2011 Silversea hope to educate more travel agents and passengers on the brand. They are keen to invite more agents onboard to experience the ships, including their latest arrival, the Silver Spirit.

The cruise line's decision to extend their UK programme is on the back of a successful 2010. With 12 sailings this year the number is double that of 2009 and 15 sailings for 2011 shows a steady increase.

Anil Swarup the UK and Europe marketing director said “Our ex-UK sailings for this year have sold out and it really has been a success story... Convenience is a big factor and the British Airways strike and the ash cloud have all helped, we have seen increasing demand for top-end UK cruises... Next year we will have even more sailings, including three round-Britain voyages and more varied itineraries.”

He added: “UK cruises just used to be the Baltic and around Britain, but we have ships that sail from the UK to places like Monte Carlo and Barcelona, with passengers flying back.”

Next year will see four of Silversea's ships sailing from the UK. Silver Spirit, Silver Whisper, Silver Cloud and their expedition class ship Prince Albert 2 will offer itineraries from ports such as Tower Bridge, Southampton, Portsmouth and Leith.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
